This posting is an update on the information sent out earlier on the "Film
Theory Meets Turkish History" Conference to be held at Istanbul Bilgi
University in Turkey, between June 18-20, 1999.  Information is also
available at www.ibun.edu.tr/cinema .  Updates and possible changes will be
announced from the Conference Homepage.

Istanbul Bilgi University Film and TV Department will be holding a
conference to bring together Teaching/Research Assistants, PhD and MA
candidates from around the globe.  The conference, which will be held June
18-20, 1999, will focus on the multiple identities and the multicultural
facets of the Turkish cinema.  As a virtually non-explored field from the
standpoint of film theory, we believe this theme will open up new
perspectives to all scholars who are researching and theorizing many of the
aspects of national cinemas.
